Extractions: Cliff Notes The Complete Series Home Moral Issues Capital Punishment Debate Over Capital Punishment A Pro Stance CAPITAL PUNISHMENT : Debate Over Capital Punishment A Pro Stance Debate Over Capital Punishment A Pro Stance Justice can not be served until the debate on capital punishment is resolved and all states have come to agree that the death penalty is the best way to stop crime completely. "The bottom line is, one method of execution is just as brutal and as barbaric as the next," says Mr. Breedlove of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. This comes straight from the mouth of a member of a national organization against capital punishment. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition defines execution as The act or an instance of putting to death or being put to death as a lawful penalty. So if Breedloves words hold true, then what he believes is that someone going out and killing someone is barbaric. In a sense isnt that what hes saying, that one way of killing someone is just as bad as any other. So if he finds this so barbaric, why doesnt he do something about it? Many people who are against capital punishment are only thinking of the criminal and how cruel it is for them. But, shouldnt we think of the families that are broken apart now because of the merciless acts of these criminals. Think of Susan Smith, how she knowingly drove her car off into a lake with her two children strapped to the seats. Think of how they must have felt as the cold water started to fill the cabin of the car, and then ultimately drown them. Barbaric is exactly the word I would use to describe her actions. But yet, the jury rejected the death penalty and chose a life sentence instead. Mr. Smith, the father of the two children, broken up from the ruling said "Me and my family are disappointed that the death penalty was not the verdict, but it wasnt our choice. They returned a verdict they thought was justice" (Bragg, pg. 1+).

Extractions: safe political weapon In recent political campaigns, the death penalty has been used both as an issue to run on and a sword for slashing opponents. Because of DNA technology, that sword now swings both ways. Texas Gov. George W Bush, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, demonstrated that Thursday night when he stepped back from his pro-capital punishment stance and spared a convicted rapist and killer so that his guilt can be tested through DNA. "Any time DNA can be used in its context and be relevant as to the guilt or innocence of a person on death row, we need to use it," Bush said in explaining why he suspended the execution of Ricky McGinn. Bush's move, the first such reprieve he has granted after presiding over 131 executions, was viewed as a victory by capital punishment opponents. "if you acknowledge DNA can resolve doubts in some cases, that's an argument against (the) death (penalty) in all cases," said Richard Dieter, director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, an anti-capital punishment group. Bush aides downplayed that suggestion Thursday. They argued behind the scenes that his action, merely reflects the governor's decency and common sense.

Extractions: The Death Penalty I f you've been following stories on DNA testing... ...you know that more than 110 people have been released from prison... ...some awaiting execution on death row... ...because DNA testing has shown them to be innocent. In a few cases these innocent people sat in prison for decades. I t is estimated that more than 20 people have been executed over the years... ...who were later shown to be innocent. The actual number is undoubtedly higher... ...but we tend not to delve into these things after the fact. O ver the years about a dozen people have been exonerated days or even minutes before they were scheduled to be executed when... ...another person confessed to the crime... ...someone uncovered new evidence, or... ...inadvertent clerical or procedural errors delayed things long enough for new evidence to surface. A nyone who takes the time to delve into the DNA testing... ...and who has the smarts to understand the science and statistics involved... ...which rules out some juries... ...knows that the possibility of error is next to impossible. Even so, the vast majority of states are refusing to open cases when sentences were handed down before the advent of DNA testing...

Extractions: While most western democracies have renounced the death penalty, capital punishment enjoys vast and growing support in the United States. A significant and vocal minority, however, continues to oppose it. Against Capital Punishment is the first full account of anti-death penalty activism in America during the years since the ten-year moratorium on executions ended. Building on in-depth interviews with movement leaders and the records of key abolitionist organizations, this work traces the struggle against the pro-death penalty backlash that has steadily gained momentum since the 1970s. It reviews the conservative turn in the courts which, over the last two decades, has forced death penalty opponents to rely less on the litigation strategies that once served them well. It describes their efforts to mount a broad-based educational and political assault on what they see as the most cruel, racist, ineffective, and expensive manifestation of a criminal justice system gone wrong. Despite the efforts of death-penalty opponents, executions in the United States are on the increase.
